Mother’s Day


Ah, Mother’s Day.
An honor we give to our
Mothers for all the love
and care they give to us
over the years.
This year I want to be
sentimental and
write about my own
mother.
My mom was a single mom
in the 50’s, when it was
not a common thing.
She was strong and yet weak
Stern yet soft
Stubborn and yet accepting
she raised my two sisters and me
and sacrificed daily to make
our lives feel like
ordinary lives.
She died when she was 72 years old,
she was taken way before
her time and I miss
her dearly.
 So, here’s to Betty,
one heck of a woman!!!!
